Warid Telecom has been leaving no stone unturned to join the next generation technology holders’ family. In the previous month, it announced to roll out the 4G LTE network without investing a single dime for its license (unlike Zong, which plunged USD 210 million for 4G license).
Then it decided to invest a massive pile of cash worth 400 million dollars in3G/4G technologies. This was aimed to keep the company up to the mark with optimized and improved data services for its subscribers.
For now, it has been working on the selection of key professionals from all over the telecom ecosystem to bring in the best available team for its LTE operations.
To start with, Mr. Sarmad Malik from Moblink – who is undoubtedly the mastermind of north region – has just joined the bandwagon of Warid Telecom as its Regional Commercial Director (North Region), as per the sources.
The genius behind the launch of EasyPaisa in Pakistan, Mr. Faisal Khan Sadozai, has also been reported to have joined the ranks of Warid Telecom. Faisal will be responsible for the Mobile Paisa operations– Warid’s wing for Mobile Financial Services – rather he gave the idea of starting these monetary services last month.
Another big gun is Asim Ali – the man who unveiled the iconic EVO products for PTCL – and then the Group VP (products and services) at Virgin Mobile Middle East and Africa has also been hired by Warid Telecom as Director Pricing & Segments.
A major contributor to Telenor impressive show in Pakistan, Talib Hafesjee, has also been appointed by Warid as Regional Commercial Director South region.
And in the last, the leading HR tycoon in the local telecom sector, Nayab Baig, has also joined the Warid workforce. Nayab is regarded to be the mastermind behind the human capital design of Telenor Pakistan. He also worked in Telenor as VP HCD for more than half a decade.
With all these glittering stars of the telecom industry joining Warid ranks, it has successfully proven its robust and outstanding achievements at every stage. With such commitment and highly qualified professional staff, the cellular operator is not far from becoming one of the leaders in the local cellular industry.
